Getting Started > Regional Energy Efficiency Organizations

As demand for more stringent energy codes grows, so does the complexity of the codes process and the need for a broad coalition of stakeholders. For anyone new to codes, simply identifying the many actors involved can be a daunting task, much less finding opportunities for involvement. Even veteran code experts must stay up-to-date with the changing landscape.

Helping in this effort are the multiple Regional Energy Efficiency Organizations (REEOs) that operate on the ground in 46 states. These groups are on the front line of the energy code adoption process and will be willing to assist you in your own efforts to encourage the advancement of building energy codes. These organizations are a great place to start if you wish to get involved with energy codes.
